NAME

cpan2pkg - generating native linux packages from cpan

VERSION

version 3.002

SYNOPSIS

    $ cpan2pkg -G
    $ cpan2pkg Module::Foo Module::Bar ...
    $ cpan2pkg --help

DESCRIPTION

Purpose of the program

This script is a glue application around cpan2dist, interacting with your upstream distribution. When calling this script, it will:

  • check whether it's alrady packaged by your vendor, and install from it if that's the case.

  • otherwise, build a native package with cpan2dist - this implies that there is a working CPANPLUS::Dist backend for your OS.

  • once built, import the module in upstream repository.

  • then submit module to upstream buildsystem.

And this, while dealing with dependencies, all the way long, repeating steps over and over as needed.

Read this blog entry for this module rationale.
